It is Mayfair Weekend here in Madrona, started off by the morning parade and followed by lots of activity up at the park. There is a little something for everybody. After you enjoy the fun, don’t forget to stop by the wine shop and get refreshed with a little wine tasting.
Saturday, we’re trying a fine line up of Organic and Biodynamic Wine from Small Producers in Slovenia, France, and Italy. We’ll be pouring a tasty white, a couple rosés, and two tasty reds. There is a little something for everybody. That starts at 2 and runs until the bottles run out but we can usually stretch them until 4pm.
Sunday, we’re featuring two Vermouths from Ransom Winery in Oregon. These artisan concoctions are great for cocktails and delicious by themselves.
